Mother’s Day buffet and golf brings in cash for Women’s Outreach

Castlegar & District Community Services Women's Outreach Program benefits from golf and buffet

Little Bear Golf Course was a busy place on Mother’s Day, as both golfer’s and non-golfer’s enjoyed a delicious buffet and/or hit the links in support of a good cause.

$2 from each meal at Mulligan’s restaurant and $2 from each round of golf was being donated to the Castlegar & District Community Services Women’s Outreach Program. At last count, $300 had been raised.

Mulligan’s general manager, Laura-Lynn MacKinnon, said she was happy forecasted rain did not arrive as the sundeck —  overlooking the pond and fairways — was a necessary expansion of the seating. She said they had three cooks and four waitresses going non-stop.

The beginner-friendly (yet challenging) nine-hole course and Mulligan’s restaurant are located at 872 Waterloo Road. The course features 18 tee boxes which changes many holes dramatically from the front nine to the back.

“It’s a fun place for golfers to work on their short game,” said Jackie Mainzer at the pro shop.
